A series about sailing ships that have survived.
4: Thames Sailing Barges
Once there were more than 4,000 Thames sailing barges around the east coast of England. Those days are long past, but some of the barges survive and regularly sail.

: SOE: Greek Entanglement

Eight stories about the Special Operations Executive
Narrated by Michael Bryant On 26 November 1942, the mountains of central Greece echoed with an explosion. The railway viaduct across the Gorgopotamos River lay in ruins. SOE had struck their first blow in the occupied Balkans.
Greek resistance fighters had joined the British-led saboteurs in the assault.
They came from two guerrilla groups-ELAS and EDES. ELAS was Communist-backed; EDES was not. From then on, SOE became more and more enmeshed in the web of Greek politics. Now, 40 years later,
SOE's men return to Greece to report on how they cut
Rommel's supply line, how they tricked the Germans - and how they had to struggle with Churchill's Foreign Office. Film cameraman EUGENE CARR

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
